Motorcycle News (UK) - - KIT TESTED -

Tested by: Dan Suther­land Time tested: 2500 miles What’s good? I was for­tu­nate enough to test the very first road-go­ing dguard emer­gency call sys­tem in the UK. For­tu­nately, I have not been able to test the bike’s abil­ity to in­de­pen­dently call for help in the event of an ac­ci­dent, but I have grown to be quite de­pen­dant on the sys­tem for the se­cu­rity of my bike. When you in­stall the prod­uct, you cre­ate an ac­count us­ing a handy mo­bile app, which dou­bles up as a re­mote to con­trol the sen­si­tiv­ity of the in-built se­cu­rity sen­sor. This is very in­tu­itive and makes cre­at­ing your per­fect per­sonal se­cu­rity set­tings a dod­dle! I was wor­ried that the dguard unit would look bulky and ob­vi­ous and spoil the look of my Kawasaki ZX-6R and so I was pleas­antly sur­prised to find the only ob­vi­ous trace of it be­ing fit­ted was the SOS but­ton on the top yoke. What’s not? If the sys­tem de­tects unau­tho­rised move­ment, it will send a no­ti­fi­ca­tion to your phone. If you for­get to switch this off and take it some­where where it is likely to move a lot (a garage for ex­am­ple), your phone is then spammed with alerts to tell you your bike has ap­par­ently been stolen.

The dguard sys­tem is neatly tucked away. Only this but­ton gives it away
